File locking in ownCloud Infinite Scale


Is there any kind of mechanic of file locking ? I’m testing ownCloud Infinite Scale 2.0.0. At one station making a file in LibreOffice in local folder (file is uploaded to ownCloud server) using spaces, then second station deletes from the Space this file, whithout a notice, that this LibreOffice file is edited at station one.
Station one is Linux box, station two is a win11 box.

Colaboration whithou a file locking mechanism is somewhat … strange ? Any solution there ? I use community version of ownCloud Infinite Scale.

Expected behaviour

Actual behaviour

No file locking, user can delete file begin edited by another user.

in the scenario that you describe there is indeed no locking on application level (yet). The reason for that that there is no (simple) solution to force a lock onto various desktop applications in a user convenient way.

If you use the online office collaboration tools like Collabora or Onlyoffice via WOPI locking is implemented and users can edit together.
